Oh, OK, I see the problem, this should have been fixed in the v5-34-00-patches branch.
Could you either use an older version of CMake (e.g. 3.1.0 or 3.2.2), or the top of v5-34-00-patches version of ROOT?
I just meet a problem installing the version 5.34/36 on my windows 7 64bit.
I download the binary distributions with .exe for Windows Visual studio 2013. I just install the file but it’s failure with a information" Warning, Path too long installer unable to modify Path".
The only setting change is changing C:/ to D:/ . How can i solve it.
Just so others who come across this topic know, it is possible to install ROOT 6 in a windows machine using the Windows Subsystem for Linux (aka Bash on Ubuntu on Windows). After the subsystem is installed you can follow the typical instructions for installing ROOT on a system such as Ubuntu.
It depends what you need. The distributed binaries contain only a minimal set of external dependencies. If you have specific needs, then you can also build from source. Up to you.
The quickest thing to try is to just download a pre-built binary and try to use it…
